I do appreciate this--I do--but the thing that really stinks about this is that my cart is full of March Madness and other purchases right now that I have been adding to my cart while I wait for MM to end. I am going to have to empty my whole cart just to pick up this offer. Now, I'm aware that whatever extra effort I have to go through to get these will be worth it. I'm not dense. But, frankly, I don't think this kind of scenario does Logos any favors. I've been in this situation before--having to empty my cart to pick up a freebie that has a small window of opportunity attached to it. The Problem? I can say for certain that I haven't always refurbished my cart to the place it was prior to having to empty it. In other words, Logos is losing sales in order for me to take advantage of a freebie. Good business? The answer is rather obvious...

Don't know if this has ever affected anyone else before, but I have a suggestion for a solution--create TWO CARTS. Logos could even call them something snazzy like "Cart 1" and "Cart 2". They should function exactly like our single cart does, they would just give us the ability to fill one for eventual purchase while using the other for immediate purchase. Anyone else see a need for this?

How badly is this needed? I'm about to clear out 9 items totaling just under $1500. I probably won't add anything back into my cart until March Madness is over. Will it add up to $1500 then? I seriously doubt it. But, hey, I'll have picked up a bunch of free stuff I probably won't ever read!!! YesBig Smile

Yes I have had this identical situation and I think that you are proposing a great idea. It could solve a lot of problems and perhaps generate more sales. I like it!

Not ideal, but since the cart is cookie based, you can use a different browser or computer as your secondary cart.

I'm gonna put "not ideal" in quotes, because it really isn't. First, I don't use IE because I have to use L3--my IE version is IE7, and at 120 in browser years, it tends to operate like the creaky dementia patient it is. The only other browser I have is Chrome. I suppose I could dl Firefox, but frankly, I just don't want to.

As far as using another computer...most weeks that would be a piece of cake; I have many to choose from. But this week is spring break. I won't have access to another computer for almost a week. If I'm going to take advantage of this offer, the cart must be flushed clean. Surprise

They could do like Amazon.com does and have the second "cart" actually be a sub-area of the shopping cart, visible on the Shopping Cart page, called "Saved for Later"; you can easily move items back and forth between the Shopping Cart and Saved for Later bin. Note that this area is distinct from your "Wish List" and you can move items out of it to the wish list. And of course you can delete items from any of these receptacles.

Yes, that would work. Simple. Efficient.

Very much appreciated!

I remember that though it's free to me, someone paid for these to be developed into Logos books. Logos is a generous company. Never forget that.

The series is also (almost) free on Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/gp/bookseries/B00CJ8EKKC/kindle/

Some volumes cost 1 or 2 cents though. I used to have the impression that 99 cents was the minimum price for a kindle book, but maybe that's only true for kdp books...

I'm not a huge follower of Sproul, but if it's free I'll take it.

Glad to know that I am in good company with that thought Big Smile

Yes, that also affected me—and has in the past. Very good suggestion David. Since I probably have everything I want from Lloyd-Jones and Carson, I went ahead and pulled the trigger on my MM purchases.

BTW: I do appreciate the freebie, and the heads up.

Excellent suggestion! Would you mind making a post in the Website forum, where it's more likely to be seen. I promise to give it a Yes, and I imagine others here will as well. 

And there is also a special Uservoice site for logos.comhttps://logosdotcom.uservoice.com/forums/183408-general/filters/top. It doesn't have many suggestions yet, so most of us probably have votes free. (And, please folks, when you go there, don't vote for the suggestions that don't belong there, but on the regular Uservoice site for Logos software. Vote for the suggestions that do belong there.)

OR

You can load a different browser, or even an "incognito" tab on your current browser - log in to logos with it, make your purchase and leave your extant shopping cart in place.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

As a Wesleyan - Armenian I could hardly be considered a huge follower of Sprout either, but I have great respect for him.  I think he represents his theological perspective very well, and my friend John Wesley often said that he was within a "hair's breadth" of Calvin.  Me too.  So there is more I agree with than disagree with in Sproul.

I especially appreciate his impact on the life of the late Charles Colson, another whom I greatly admire.  I also appreciate the way Sprout has brought theology to the common man... and woman.  That is something we all could learn from Sproul.  If they do not communicate theology to the average person, what good are theologians?

Brother, I'd be surprised if many follow "Sprout". Sproul on the other hand has a pretty decent following across the spectrum as you yourself attest. Looks like autocorrect got the better of you this time :)

Thank you Logos, and Sproul for making these available for free! I had the free (all of them are free on amazon at the moment) kindle versions, but its always better to have them directly in Logos.
